AN EPIC attempt by three removal men to carry a fridge from Ludlow to the summit of Snowdon is almost halfway done.

June 4 is day three of seven for Richard Carpenter, Rowan Ingram, and Cameron Nicholas, who are attempting to walk from their depo in Ludlow to the top of the mountain, more than 100 miles from their starting point.

The distance means it already seems like a large undertaking, while adding the transport of a fridge up to the summit makes it an intimidating challenge to say the least, but it is a challenge that the Wicked Removals team are more than willing to accept.

Spurring them on is a will to raise as much money as possible for the Teenage Cancer Trust and, at the time of writing, these heroic removal men have so far raised £1219.00.

Company director Jason Stanley believes that with all of the hard-earned support that they have had through their donations, they could even double that figure by the end of the week.

Mr Stanley is very proud of how well his colleagues are getting on. 

“It’s really tough,” he said.

“Some of the bridlepaths are really challenging, and they are having to climb over stiles with a fridge on their backs and the nettles stinging their legs.”

Wicked Removals have taken this all in their stride, and all in the name of charity.

Walking around 16 miles a day, they may be powering through hump day, but there is still a long road ahead of them and they need support to make it all worthwhile.

Not only will their efforts be an amazing achievement and accomplishment for the team, but they will also make a big difference to the lives of young people with cancer.

The Teenage Cancer Trust said seven young people aged 13 to 24 are told they have cancer each day, each needing specialised nursing care and support to get them through it.

The charity said it is the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need – so no young person faces cancer alone... a cause that being chased through a field of inquisitive bullocks with a fridge in hand more than justifies.
